THE BIG INSIGHT
GPT-5 trademark application hints at groundbreaking new features
According to several tweets and online reports, OpenAI has recently filed a Trademark application with the US Patent and Trademark Office for GPT-5.
In case you’re not familiar with AI models, GPT-4 is OpenAI’s current leading model, which powers many of today’s biggest AI apps, like ChatGPT.
Filed on July 18, 2023, the application covers a range of language model applications such as:
Artificial production of human speech and text
Audio to text conversion
Voice and speech recognition
Machine-learning based language and speech processing
Translation of text or speech from one language to another
Creating and generating text
Developing and implementing artificial neural networks
Seems like audio input and generation will be one of the major next steps for the upcoming model. Although many are still waiting on the image upload features promised in GPT-4 at the time of release.
There’s currently no expected date for the release of GPT-5. But considering how wildly successful GPT-3 and GPT-4 have been, there’s bound to be a lot of excitement for the latest addition.
